http://tinyurl.com/7w5zjxp GORGEOUS 38″ Length of Lace circa 1870 Antique BRUSSELS POINT DE GAZE ~EX COND
Size: 3.5″ x 38″
Starting Price: $9.99
Auction ends: Mar 29, 2012 18:00:02 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller things*most*delightful, Sacramento, California, United States
Comments: An all-to-short length of Point de Gaze, probably 3rd quarter 19th c. No raised work, which is no problem because of the wonderful use of fillings. The design elements are not that refined, but put together this is a very pleasing piece. And condition appears very good, only one tiny hole near the engrelure 11″ from one end.

   Sold for $102.50, 9 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/762pnhq ANTIQUE LACE EARLY FLANDERS BOBBIN LACE FOR STUDY
Size: 2.75″ x 41″
Starting Price: $25.99 with reserve
Auction ends: Mar 30, 2012 14:08:37 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller greatlace, Paris – Palm Beach, United States
Comments: Probably 2nd quarter 18thc border, I’d call it Valenciennes with a 5-hole ground. Not untypical for Val at this period, when lacemakers experimented with several different grounds before settling on the round-hole mesh. There is some nice shading of the motifs. The picoted edge is a later addition – hard to tell if it’s been cut down. The swirling design seems complete, but maybe a little truncated on the picot edge.  A few small holes and some fraying, minor. One join.

   Sold for $120.00, 4 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/84qfkp8 c1850 Elegant Black Chantilly Lace Parasol Cover
Size: 25.5″ in diameter
Starting Price: $99.00
Auction ends: Mar 30, 2012 19:00:44 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller calexa2010, Coupeville, Washington, United States
Comments: A Chantilly parasol cover, probably Belgian. Good, fairly elaborate spoked design, and I think it’s finer than it looks. Wish there were more closeups – I had to focus in a lot to convince myself that the rings have honeycomb edges, a handmade characteristic. Condition appears very good, I don’t see any major problems from the photos.  I don’t think it’s helped much by the beige ground in the photo.

   Sold for $99.00, 1 bidder.

http://tinyurl.com/75sm8lf c1850 ANCIEN & VERITABLE COUSSIN DE DENTELLIERE AVEC FUSEAUX
Size: 52 cm long, 45 cm wide, 22 cm high
Starting Price: 75.00 EUR
Auction ends: Mar 31, 2012 10:52:49 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller mamynet46, Waterloo, Belgium
Comments: A Belgian pillow with triangular base. Seller says it is from Bruges. It does not have the bobbin extension piece.  One drawer in the base. The red cover with green tape is undoubtedly an addition of the lacemaker – these were usually covered in white canvas, and the worker put on whatever cover they liked.  It looks like a good, serviceable piece of equipment, in very good condition for the age.

   No bids.

http://tinyurl.com/6qr26mh  BINCHE ANCIEN & BINCHE HAND MADE BOBBIN LACE HANDKERCHIEF アンティーク レース 日本語が話せます
Size: 11″ square
Starting Price: $10.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Mar 31, 2012 15:30:15 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller eastayton, London. England, United Kingdom
Comments: Modern Binche handkerchiefs tend to be small, and this is no exception. The design is a bit large and a little more abstract from what one normally thinks of this lace. A puzzling piece, I’d put it later 19th c.  Condition appears very good, I don’t see any problems from the photos.

   Sold for $85.00, 6 bidders.

Size: 25″ across laid flat
Starting Price: $10.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Mar 31, 2012 15:20:46 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller eastayton, London. England, United Kingdom
Comments: A Point de Gaze shawl collar. The lace is flat and nicely done with interesting fillings.  Good naturalistic design.  The condition appears exceptional.  I see a few tiny pinholes in the net, but negligible for a piece of this quality.

   Sold for $195.00, 6 bidders.

アンティーク レース 日本語が話せます

Size: 14″ square
Starting Price: $10.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Mar 31, 2012 15:40:01 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller eastayton, London. England, United Kingdom
Comments: A Duchesse handkerchief, no needlelace.  Note the well defined motifs, with good raised work defining the veins and flower petals.  Each motif is a well-made product in itself, with the design through into high relieve by the very simple, open bride ground.  It almost has a Ghent flavor.  The condition is very good – looks fresh from the pillow.

   $132.50, 10 bidders, reserve not met.

Size: not given
Starting Price: $10.00 with reserve
Auction ends: Mar 31, 2012 15:50:44 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller eastayton, London. England, United Kingdom
Comments: A Chantilly shawl collar. This form was made well into the 20th century, so is hard to date. The work looks fine enough that it could be a French product. Very naturalistic flower and leaf depictions. Seller notes one repair in the last photo, but otherwise very good condition.

   Sold for $340.00, 8 bidders.

Comments: Another Chantilly parasol cover with quite a dense design.  Good naturalistic flower, foliage and bows. The pendant leaves around the edge would drape nicely on a parasol. Condition looks unused, I don’t see any problems from the photos.

   Sold for $249.00, 5 bidders.

http://tinyurl.com/6m7l7xb ANTIQUE LACE- FINE 19THC.BRUSSELS LACE 2/POINT DE GAZE
Size: 6.5″ x 31″
Starting Price: $225.00 Buy-it-Now
Auction ends: Mar 31, 2012 ~19:00 PDT
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London-New York, United States
Comments: Note, this piece and 160752208051 look the same, have the same measurements and descriptions, but different prices. I’ll write to the seller for clarification.  It is a good, dense design Duchesse de Bruxelles, with flat needelace flowers in diamond shaped inserts.  All work looks very good, and the condition appears excellent.  Has provenance.

   Unsold.

Starting Price: 395.00 Buy-it-now
Auction ends: Mar 31, 2012 ~21:00 PDT
Offered by: Maria Niforos, Ebay seller mithya, London-New York, United States
Comments: Brussels Duchesse with a twist.  I love the needlelace inserts with the central jour medallion surrounded by little sprigs in a kind of wreath design. And the curlicue motifs below the bobbinlace flowers are great. The bobbinlace clothwork is quite tightly done, and the overall effect very pleasing. Seller cites a few minor openings in the lace and heading, but overall very good condition.

   Unsold.

http://tinyurl.com/6tdkdqv VICTORIA ,NET & BOBBIN LACE LARGE COLLAR. PROBABLY HONITON LACE
Size: 35.5″ max depth, 21″ max width
Starting Price: 78.00 GBP
Auction ends: Apr 01, 2012 07:34:16 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller kimsucadi, Wokingham, Berkshire, United Kingdom
Comments: A Honiton applique on machine net shawl collar.  I wonder if this wasn’t assembled from another piece.  The design is quite random, and the quality of the motifs seems much more tightly woven than what you normally find in such pieces. Seller cites some tiny holes and a tiny repair, overall good condition.

   No bids.

Auction ends: Apr 01, 2012 08:09:35 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller ourhut, near Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Comments: A Brussels bobbinlace with droschel ground – looks maybe 3rd quarter 18th century. Note the extensive bobbinlace fillings, quite interesting in their variety. Wish there were more. Seller cites a few brown spots, overall very good condition.

   Sold for 93.00 GBP, 4 bidders.

Comments: A Brussels applique on machine net border. Note the esprits in the ground, and the delicate motifs. A middle market product, but nicely done. Not many closeup photos, but condition appears good.

Starting Price: $99.99
Auction ends: Apr 01, 2012 18:04:17 PDT
Offered by: Ebay seller adtjmd, RED VELVET BENCH, United States
Comments: An interesting tape applique on machine lace – this looks like machine tape with some embroidery on the net for fillings. Quite an elaborate piece, could easily be mistaken for bobbinlace motifs.  Condition appears very good. Seller calls it ‘Princess’ lace, but I don’t know if that trade term applies to this specific effort. Seller cites age discoloration and some tiny breaks and separations, all minor.

   Sold for $376.00, 6 bidders.

Comments: Filet can be very good – design, embroidery, a solid net. When you see really good pieces they are worthy of any collection.  These probably come from Italy, where much of the best work was done.  A few breaks, but nothing major.
